Here is another example of that beautiful pale copper shade paired with bright white. Pictured, is a stairway in the grand courtyard of Palazzo Doria Tursi in Genoa, Italy. It’s one of the 3 stunning 16th century palazzi on Via Garibaldi which comprise the “Musei di Strada Nuova.” Palazzo Rosso, Palazzo Bianco and Palazzo Doria Tursi are architectural gems of a bygone era. The buildings themselves and the artworks therein exemplify the great wealth of the aristocrats in 16th century Genoa. The entire street was inaugurated in 2006 as a UNESCO World Heritage sight and is composed of 42 restored palazzi. One such palazzo is now an exquisite boutique called Via Girabaldi 12. Stay at Palazzo Cicala across from San Lorenzo in the medieval area of this fascinating seaport city. Remember too, this is the birthplace of Cristoforo Colombo.
